Reading Time: <1 minuteI participated in the Japanese Society of Cosmetic Surgery on May 30th and 31st. I was hoping for an academic presentation, but I'm disappointed, but I think this is more of a problem than PR for a company. I was often disappointed to hear that some doctors were presenting presentations that were considered to be similar to those of the Showa era, and that some doctors were announcing that the surgical techniques were equivalent to those of the Showa era. In particular, regarding the topic of gynecological labia minora reduction surgery, I was surprised that the surgical technique was a Showa era technique and was not performed with consideration to wound healing. In the presentation about labia minora reduction surgery, let's do small stitches, let's do medium stitches...that's impossible. There is no need to close sutures on mucosal surfaces such as the labia minora. The reason is that suturing is done on the mucosal surface, which heals better than on the skin, and should be sutured relatively roughly to avoid leaving suture marks as much as possible. The idea that the finer the suture is, the better, is a mistake when it comes to suturing, as it can impede blood flow and delay healing at the suture area. Also, due to the design, the incision was made abruptly, and the sutures did not match well. He designed the area where it was extremely difficult to design, and after anesthesia, he clamped the intestine with a spatula and made an incision, and the wound lined up perfectly at the same time as the incision. Incisions should not be made freehand. I was very disappointed because the presentation showed that other basic cosmetic surgery techniques were not properly learned. Since this is an academic conference, I would have liked to see new surgical techniques and surgical techniques that are beyond the standard presented. Patients are not aware of this fact. Presented at an academic conference... Amazing! You might think that. If you are aiming for a high-quality academic conference, you may need to carefully examine the topic of your presentation.
